Light Up the Night! Iluminando la Noche
Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition to Distribute 1,000 Free Lights
What: The Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition’s (SBBIKE’s) seventh annual light distribution, Iluminando La Noche (Light Up the Night)—1,000 free bicycle lights shared with low-income cyclists in need
When: Nov 6 to Nov 9, 2017, starting at 5 pm (4:30 p.m. on Nov 8) at a different location along the South Coast each evening
- Monday, Nov 6 – EASTSIDE, Milpas & Cota
- Tuesday, Nov 7 – GOLETA, 5679 Hollister (Goleta Valley Community Center)
- Wednesday, Nov 8 – CARPINTERIA, Linden & Carpinteria (will start at 4:30 pm)
- Thursday, Nov 9 – WESTSIDE, 628 W. Micheltorena
Why: With the time change, it gets dark early. Many of our community members whose bicycles are their primary modes of transportation will soon be biking to get home from work or to run errands after dark. Ensuring these community members have lights increases their safety and visibility. During the distribution, bilingual volunteers will collect basic data to aid SBBIKE in better understanding the needs of the community; provide quick tips to increase cycling safety; and tell participants about Bici Centro, the DIY bicycle repair shop located at 434 Olive Street.
